Good, sturdy, fast drive 6/23/2020 1:52:02 PM

Pros: Durable, fast (for a physical drive), quiet, with a decent amount of storage at a good price.

Cons: Not large by today's standards, not as fast as solid state.

Overall Review: Having used Seagate drives for many years, I've been having lots of problems with them going bad lately. So I thought I would give this Western Digital drive a try when I was building a new Linux box for my son. I couldn't really be happier. The drive worked great right out of the box with no problems and great performance. A great choice for average-use storage at a good value.

Came looking new, but not in original package. 5/10/2020 12:39:43 PM

Pros: Quick shipping, protected for shipling well, came in antistatic bag.

Cons: Came in antistatic bag and not original packaging.

Overall Review: Despite being set to deliver much later, to my surprise it came very early. The packing in the box was great, and sufficent to prote t it through shipping, however the original packaging was not on it.

New old stock, works just fine. 4/7/2020 8:07:00 AM

Overall Review: Manufacture date is 2014 on the drive. I cloned an old drive to it and it works great. Appears to be factory sealed just like a recently manufactured drive.
